Wazzu Sweeps Blue Cougars

PULLMAN, Wash. -- A three-run ninth-inning rally fell short Tuesday as BYU’s baseball team lost the nightcap, 4-3, on the heels of a 3-0 loss earlier in the day to Washington State.

After rain postponed Monday’s game between the two teams, WSU emerged with a sweep to improve its record to 17-19, while BYU is now 20-18.

That BYU rally came when freshman Kelton Caldwell led off with a right field single, followed by Dane Nielsen getting aboard from an error and freshman Jaycob Brugman drawing a walk on four straight pitches with no outs to load the bases.

Caldwell scored when Washington native Stephen Wells got on with an error. Pinch-hitter Chase Frampton then belted a two-run single to right field to score Nielsen and Brugman. With two blue Cougars still on base, three consecutive strikeouts ended BYU’s rally and the game.

Caldwell and Austin Hall had doubles in both games to no avail.

WSU jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning, then increased it to 2-0 in the fourth and to 4-0 in the sixth in game two.

In game one, BYU had runners on second and third in the first and fourth innings, the latter with one out, but couldn’t push a run across in a game deadlocked at 0-0 through the bottom of the eighth.

BYU now readies to host No. 7 TCU in a three-game series beginning Thursday at Miller Park.
